Camp Dippikill - like no other place!

Camp Dippikill is a private 850-acre wilderness retreat facility owned by the Student Association of the University at Albany. Since 1956 Dippikill has remained true to its mission: To keep the area pristine, limit development and offer visitors a glimpse of nature's beauty while enjoying overnight visits in rustic-style lodging. The cabins and campsites at Dippikill are open to reservations from University at Albany undergraduates and University at Albany affiliates: graduate students, alumni, faculty and staff.

SA Cares!

What is SA Cares? SA Cares is an initiative that is run by the Student Association at the University at Albany focusing on bettering the City of Albany by giving back to the community. SA Cares also expands to involve our campus community in charitable events by encouraging volunteer help.

SA Cares hosts food and clothing drives (which are provided to those who need it most); community clean-ups that take place mostly in downtown Albany; holiday toy drives that provide young children with presents for the holidays; as well as tons of other fun and beneficial projects. In the past, SA Cares has worked with the Center for Family and Youth in the Albany area, the Pine Hills Neighborhood Association, and the Ronald McDonald House. SA Cares strives to continue their contributions each semester by taking on more projects and increasing donations.

SA Cares needs all of the help that we can get! Not only do we always welcome new members, we are open to any and every idea that you may have! It begins with our community.
